the last book I ever read (Elvis Costello's Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, excerpt eleven)

from Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink by Elvis Costello:

When I came over to visit in the last days of Advent, the front door was answered and I saw the imposing black-clad figure filling a doorframe in the hallway. He offered a hand that swallowed mine and spoke the words familiar from countless television appearances: “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.”

He looked extraordinarily like himself.
